It’s Throwback Thursday and I got me a new look!

I’ve been experimenting a little bit with my look lately. Especially my hair. I’m normally a brunette, and I love my straight/wavy dark hair.

But this was kind of a throwback to the good ol’ SL days, when I used to be blonde with curly hair.

I was a newbie looking for freebie hair on ‘XStreetSL’…before it became the SL ‘Marketplace’. I decided I’d like to be blonde, and I found some particularly shiny, bouncy hairs and thought they were cute. I wore them everywhere…especially a long curly one called “Alice” that I bought for L$ 45.

Okay get ready for a major ‘Blast from the Past’!

The guys used to love it, and I got a few compliments from the ladies too! I felt like Miss Virtual World!

*Blush* but who doesn’t look back on their SL past in embarrassment, right?

Here’s a some more cringeworthy throwback for y’all! 😀

I used to send this picture to beauty pageants! I wonder why I never had much luck as a model. 

See… blonde bombshell. The babiest babe of them all! Gah!

Wasn’t so bad for its time though..considering there were no meshy bits around then…except clothes. This was flexi hair and I loved the way it bounced..lol.

So stying true to the blonde curly – here’s my updated look..

Drum roll please….!!!!!!

And without glasses….

My hair is from Analog Dog and it’s called Gemma. I love the detail on it and I’ve even been told I resemble Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City…which was flattering, but I’m not believing anyone this time. 😛

What do you think? I’d love to hear.

Well maybe a few years from now I’ll be laughing at this one too 😀

Leaving on a Jet ski!

Day 2 at Miami Beach, eager to flaunt my sexy new mesh body, I threw on a cool little bikini, some sun block and sunglasses, and decided to get on to a jet ski for some fast and furious fun. I rented this mean green machine, the Speed master TXA 5500.ew (3) It was my first time on one of these, so the start was a little..er..bumpy. I steered my jet ski straight into another rider’s and the impact flung her into the water….eeep! I tried to approach her to see if she was okay, but she told me to stay away, and even hurled a few colorful words at me…oopsie…But I was sure glad she was okay.

Moving along, I finally managed to get in control of the darn thing. then I decided to have some fun! I spotted a ski jump and decided to have a go.

The result was my jet ski lifting off nearly 50 feet in the air!!!ew (1)

Gasp….I held my breath and prayed for a soft landing…and luckily it was!! I decided I’m going to stick to stunt-less riding until I can perfect my skills. And I’m definitely wearing a life-jacket next time!!

Moral of the story – In water-sports and life – always use protection (a life-jacket… whatever else you’re thinking -yeah that too). Know when to stop. (I could’ve avoided that collision.) Take calculated risks, but don’t get cocky. Apart from all that, go crazy and enjoy the ride!!

Do you have any fun water sport stories to share? I’d love to hear them in the comments.

What I’m wearing –

Bikini – Rainbow colors by BaBey – I found this great store on the Marketplace that sells lovely detailed applier swim wear for 1L$ or 3L$, or sometimes $10. Great detail on the fabric and totally worth it.

Sunglasses – Brii- Elza (part of hunt item)

Jet ski -Speed master TXA 5500 -Miami beach – free to rent

Riding the waves!

Another day in Miami, soaking up the sun and working up a nice tan! Today I was in the mood for some action on the high seas! Water-sports, that is. 🙂

With so many options – windsurfing, jet skiing, surfing, floaties and even gliders – I was spoiled for choice. But since there was a particularly windy day, I decided it was a good idea to go windsurfing.

At one point it got so windy, and the waves were so fierce I almost toppled over! But I managed to control the sail and stay upright. (I really must invest in a life jacket!) The wind did mess up my hair though. but it was totally worth it!

That’s the spirit! *hic

Okay so recently I’ve been spending all my time at the beach. I love Miami Beach in SL Florida. The other day, I was on the beach and it was really hot! When I returned to the shore after a dip in the cool seawater, the sun blazing upon me, I realized how very hot it was. I decided I needed a drink to cool off. Luckily the bar was close by. But there was a problem – there was no bartender! But I could see beautiful, inviting bottles of the finest alcohol appearing to coo my name! So that’s where I headed.

I couldn’t resist, so I opened the ice box and decided to grab a nice, cool, refreshing Corona beer! I looked around to see if anyone was watching. Then hid behind the bar and enjoyed my drink. Still no one looking….so I grabbed another…then one more…then I started to feel tipsy. I could see a person approaching the bar, but by now I didn’t care.Picture1

I came out of my hiding spot and wobbled onto the counter top. And there in full public view I began to dance. People started looking, and I drew some attention from the guys, of course. I blew kisses, called them over to the bar, handed them some free drinks, and I think I even fell over once, but got back up. But I felt like a star entertaining her audience. ……O.oSnapshot_023

Soon, the man approaching the bar drew closer. As I leaned in for a closer look, I think I tripped on a glass..I plopped over again, this time straight into his strong arms. He set me back onto the table and told me to be careful. Then he got to work setting up the bar….he was the Bartender!

I continued to dance, and noticed him watching me from the corner of his eye. He was enjoying himself. I clearly, unintentionally put on a show for people, which was drawing more people to the bar, so he surely didn’t mind. Things went on..and I got offered more beers too.

At one point I offered him a drink too! But he politely reminded me he wasn’t allowed to drink on duty. After his shift ended, he picked me off the counter and set me on a chair. We had a beautiful conversation… I think.

All I remember is that his name was Jon and he was gorgeous, with fiery red hair.We exchanged numbers and promised to meet again. “Same time, same place, drinks on me” he said.

Sun, sand and sea!! It’s summer!

Wow, I’m back to blogging after a what seems like Forever! But it’s summer, my favorite season, and this summer is so HOT I had to come right back here to spread some hotness!

What better way to beat the heat than to hit the water, right? So that’s exactly what I did. I’ve been on vacation on a beautiful island recently with my boyfriend. So one morning it just seemed like a good day for a deep sea adventure. I work up at dawn, my man still in bed, and decided to throw on a swimsuit and simply dive into the sea off the island! And the most amazing underwater adventure began. The clear blue water suddenly opened up a colorful world of coral and plankton and all kinds of colorful sea creatures. I spotted some seahorses too!

Swimming at the bottom of the sea I suddenly saw some interesting stone formations that looked like ruins. They just drew me close somehow, and I saw they were ruins of an ancient Greek temple, with sculptures and arches still standing. It seemed to come alive for a moment. Just as I continued to explore, amidst the schools of colorful fish and coral, I sensed danger. Suddenly, out of nowhere – a S…Sh…Shark!!!!

Snapshot_032.png

I was so scared,I didn’t know whether to swim or stay still – I could never out-swim it. But I managed to find a spot behind a rock, and hid in it. As the shark swam past, I was relieved -until I peeked out and saw 4 more circling me! It’s like the first one invited its family to lunch! My adventure started to feel like a nightmare as one shark headed toward me. I started to feel faint.

But then something amazing happened – he swam away. And the others didn’t attack either. They just went about with their business, oblivious to this tasty looking creature. They were friendly sharks lol. I decided it was safe and continued to explore but caution to not disturb them. Phew.

I saw jellyfish and stingrays too but they all seemed friendly. Finally I decided to head back out to the surface for breath. But swimming alongside me was this giant turtle who escorted me to the surface like a true gentle-turtle! (We even had a little swimming race…I won… but I think he let me win…and I was actually fast because I really needed air!!

Gasp! I finally caught my breath, my heart still pounding, and decided to head back to land where my partner had woken up and was waiting for me with a big steaming cup of coffee and a hot breakfast. “Where have you been? I was worried.” he said. I gave him a huge kiss, still drenched, and replied,”Not far, baby, I just went for a little swim.” 😉

 

What I’m wearing:

Bikini – Sky~ – Kini – Past Group gift. I wonder if the store is still open. I love it but can’t find it anymore 😦

Skin – Wow Skins – Stella  – Past Group gift

Hands & Feet – Slink

Sim – Maran’s Landing

 

International Yoga Day! June 21!

Yoga at sunrise! International Yoga day

I recently started taking yoga lessons since I read it is one of the most ancient forms of exercise, but a great way to stay fit and relax!

I’ve been going crazy with all the junk food and wine recently and I needed to get in shape for the upcoming Miss Virtual World competition. Since I’ll be competing with some of the most beautiful women in the virtual world, it is very stressful and a lot of hard work. So I think yoga will help me shed all those extra pounds and relax my mind as well!

I found a beautiful, serene spot near a pond with a little waterfall at Maran’s Island and decided to head there at dawn for a nice peaceful session of Yoga! It was so peaceful with only the sound of the water flowing, the trees swaying in the breeze and the birds chirping.

Some of the ‘asanas’ or yoga exercises are real tongue twisters!  The one in the title pic is the Veerabhadrasana or Bow and arrow asana.

I started off with the easy ones….

Yoga at sunrise! International Yoga Day!

…before progressing to the more challenging asanas

Yoga by the pond.

Dawn workout!

Some rather acrobatic ones like th ‘scorpion’

…and even some downright gravity defying ones!

Bridge-asana! :D

This one is ‘Hanumanasana’ named after a Hindu god. I decided to challenge myself as you can see in the photo! It took loads of lower body strength..lol just to avoid falling into the water. At the end of it I actually did fall in..but enjoyed cooling off with that dip! lol

Being able to pull off all those difficult Asanas, I think I’m quite fit and ready to take on the competition!

Sunday with the Avengers!

It’s the weekend! I decided to head to the Apollo theater to watch the latest Avengers movie. Yes, I love superheroes! Iron man has always been one of my biggest crushes! 🙂

Snapshotmovee_006

So I reached the theater and it was a full house, as expected. The refreshment stand was going to get super crowded, so I decided to quickly grab some popcorn and a coke!

Snapshotmovee_014 Snapshotmovee_019

Then it was time for the movie! Yay! I was so excited after hearing all the great reviews! I knew Iron Man would make me proud again! LOL!

I was so engrossed in the movie, I could actually feel like I was in it! All the mixed emotions. I was jumping out of my seat and cheering, sometimes laughing out loud, going “aawww” when some parts made were scary and some made me sad, and the next moment I was back to cheering lol! People around me thought I was crazy!Sunday at the Movies!

I did talk to that cute guy sitting in the next seat btw! Turns out he’s a superhero fan too, but his favorite is Black Widow, of course…hehe. We are going to watch another movie together next week! 😛

You’re welcome to join in too!! 🙂

Burning up the dance floor!

So I’ve recently been practicing my dance moves! And what better place than my favorite inworld haunt –Sweethearts Jazz Club. I love how everyone there is so friendly and classy and they make you feel at home instantly. Not to mention, the music is fabulous! Especially the DJs play some fantastic music, and they always just seem to know exactly what music I love!

Anyway, here’s me doing some crazy acrobatics on the dance floor…(I think I might have knocked some people over and damaged some furniture with all those flips and kicks lol! 😀 )

Not to mention my endless shopping sprees and that I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain, and even better–good freebies!! I will share some of the good stuff I find so you can go grab it too!

I am also fine-tuning my dance moves so look out for my  “Shakin’ It…” posts.

And I will also write about the interesting people I meet in SL (If you’re ever mean to me, I might write a song about you too -Taylor Swift style 😀 )

I would love to hear from you– your thoughts, recommendations on good places to see or fun things to do in SL. Or just send some me some love and I will send some back too!! 🙂
